The Archaeopteryx is a tree-dwelling bird-like dinosaur. While its smaller frame make it unfit for riding, it is strong enough to carry humans, allowing them to glide across long distances. Taming an Archaeopteryx is no simple task, as it will immediately flee when approached, and once knocked out, it prefers to eat rare insect matter.

What does a Archaeopteryx eat? In ARK: Survival Evolved, the Archaeopteryx eats Simple Kibble, Pelagornis Kibble, and Chitin.
